Ok. I see that the last one was promoted just yesterday, so I will write another one. Actually this one is kinda interesting.
So, I was hesitant to read this book. I didn't really care to see the movie as I didn't care for those movies like Bloodsport or Kick-boxer. You know the ones, where the plot follows some gay guy on his quest to become champ in the sport he excels in. They always just bore me.
But then, when I mentioned this to a guy who's opinion I trust, he said, "Is that what you think this is about? Damn man. We are getting loaded (he was my pot dealer at the time) and watching it.
I thought, "Ooo! Free dube and an hour on the couch watching mindless fighting. OK. Whatever." So I watched it.
And it became one of my all time favourite movies. The plot was deep and the actors totally fill their roles (altho I didn't really see Edward Norton as the protagonist / narrator) and because of all the twists that happen, I was wary to read the novel.
Last week I did, and I am glad that I did. You get to travel into the minds of the deeply rich characters. It reads kinda choppy at the beginning, but after the Tyler character is introduced, the rest of the book just flows on by.
I give it 3.5 stars out of 5. I would have given it 4 but since I had already seen the movie, the book didn't hold to many surprises for me. Still a good book to curl up too.
